AUS vs PAK 1st Test: Aussie quick suspended, to miss Gabba Test

By Staff Writer

AUS vs PAK 1st Test: Australia fast-bowler has been found guilty of a level two breach of Article 2.1.3 of Cricket Australia’s code of conduct for personal abuse of a player. James Pattinson has been handed a one-match suspension for the same, and will miss the first Test against Pakistan at Gabba, Brisbane. The incident took place during Victoria’s Sheffield Shield game against Queensland.

Pattinson on the incident

“I made a mistake in the heat of the moment. Straight away I realised I was in the wrong, and I apologised immediately, both to the opponent and to the umpires. I have done the wrong thing and accept the penalty. I’m gutted to miss a Test match, but the standards are there for a reason and the fault is mine.”

Tim Paine on the incident

“He knows he’s let himself down, he’s let the group down. We actually had a chat last night about the fact we hold ourselves to really high standards with our behaviour. That’s not just when we’re playing [international] cricket, we’ve got to go back to domestic cricket and lead the way on that front as well, so we’re disappointed in that, but James has owned up and knows he’s made mistake and has apologised for it and he will come back bigger and better.”
